    Hello Everyone,

    I'm seeking thoughts on whether you agree the image below is:

    Evernia prunastri or oakmoss lichen


    Also, I've tried unsuccessfully to gain positive of the "Pink Blobs" on the lichen in the image below. Any thoughts on ID would be much appreciated.

    Thanks so much,

    Keith F. Saylor

    Yes, I'd agree with Evernia prunastri, though there are a few lookalikes.

    As for the pink blobs, hmm.. do you know if they were part of the thallus of the (what looks like) underlying lichen or a separate entity?
